Wendell Berry’s Bringing It to the Table: On Farming and Food.
Only halfway through. Fantastic read so far, especially in how he relates how the industrial concept (bigger, better, faster, mechanized) doesn’t work when applied to human society itself. Recommended.

On a related note, given that it got mentioned in Berry’s book, do they really call home economics “family and consumer economics” now? Seriously and for real? Uh … wow, I’m not happy about that. I hate being labeled as a mere “consumer”, and I really resent the way the consumer mindset is being pushed on us constantly. I produce, dangit!
